There's Only One Blockbuster Left in the United States

That will leave the OR store as the last operating Blockbuster in the country.
According to a report by the Anchorage Daily News, the last two Blockbuster stores in Alaska are closing their doors for good. The two locations, one in Anchorage and the other in Fairbanks, will stop renting movies on Monday, and then sell off any remaining inventory through August. The last survivor, which will probably be made into a museum of the 90's one day, is located in Bend, Oregon.
Blockbuster Alaska District Manager Kelli Vey and General Manager Kevin Daymude took to Facebook to issue the following message regarding the Alaskan closures.
"You would not believe how much business we got just from that memorabilia alone", he said.
Although the store manager had, at the time, hoped the publicity stunt would lead to a spike in business, the curiosity proved not to be enough. The Wasilla, North Pole and Soldotna locations closed earlier this year, along with a second Anchorage store.
Some have credited expensive internet as a factor in keeping the Alaska locations open longer than most stores.
Even after receiving some attention from Last Week Tonight With John Oliver and being gifted some movie memorabilia in the form of the jock strap worn by Russell Crow in 2005's Cinderella Man, the reality of the modern media landscape couldn't be held back from reaching Alaska forever. An employee interviewed for the segment noted that many people simply photograph or enter the store for the novelty and memories. A Facebook post near the end of June on the Blockbuster Alaska page read, "We see you out there taking selfies in front of our stores, show them to us!" The last two Alaska store leases end in August. Slowly but surely, Blockbuster began to fade away like Thanos performed the "Snap" on all of the store's locations.
